Early Arians talk and an OL in a week

Posted by Darren Urban on August 1, 2013 – 9:58 am

The Cardinals just got off the bus here in Tempe — they still had meetings and changed out in the locker room at University of Phoenix Stadium before coming to the facility to practice — and Bruce Arians met with the media before practice, so they can all hope on the bus and leave quickly when today’s outdoor practice is over. Some news and notes:

Eric Winston’s ascension to the first-unit offensive line is just a start, Arians said. “We’re going to mix and match,” Arians said, noting that the line battles remain close and he wants to see how all of them work with starting QB Carson Palmer. Nevertheless, Arians added the Cards would like to settle on their starting offensive line in “seven or eight days” — which dovetails nicely with the Cardinals’ first preseason game in Green Bay in eight days.

– That said, Arians stressed, he wants to continue to build offensive line depth. That, in fact, is a bigger concern that the starting five, Arians said.

– Arians said C Lyle Sendlein has had a “fantastic camp” thus far. Important to note since center is the one spot that doesn’t seem to have any kind of intense competition.

– The coach said fourth-round pick G Earl Watford, who has been running third-string is getting better and the last couple of practices “have been a nice move for him.” He is cutting down on his mental errors. “When he gets his hands on you it’s over,” Arians said. “He’s just got to figure out who to get his hands on.” Watford’s development is key — you figure a fourth-rounder will be on the roster, but he’s got to be able to play if needed.

– Nothing new injury-wise, Arians said. RB Ryan Williams (knee) remains out one more day. G Daryn Colledge (calf) is “hopefully” a week away from practicing. It’ll be interesting to see if he can return for the preseason opener in Green Bay, although I don’t think the Cards will push it.

– The Red-White practice Saturday will be a normal practice, Arians said.

– There are officials at practice. Arians said he wants to have them a couple of times a week, at least with college officials.

A new Pro Bowl, a day off and a mashup

Posted by Darren Urban on July 31, 2013 – 12:25 pm

The Cardinals have the day off, so the NFL did us a favor and threw out a little news: The Pro Bowl is changing. The biggest news of these changes is that, instead of AFC-NFC, the Pro Bowlers will be picked and then “drafted” on to two separate teams. Could that mean Patrick Peterson covering Larry Fitzgerald in the Pro Bowl? Yes. Then again, we see this all the time in camp. (It’s been suggested this won’t work, that say Terrell Suggs can’t be asked to sack Joe Flacco, or Aldon Smith to Colin Kaepernick. Maybe. Seems like, in general, a good idea for a game looking for good ideas.)

There will be other changes too. From the NFL release:

  • Game within the Game – A two-minute warning will be added to the first and third quarters and the ball will change hands after each quarter.  This will increase the opportunities for quarterbacks to direct “two-minute drills,” which are especially exciting for fans.
  • No Kickoffs – The coin toss will determine which team is awarded possession first.  The ball will be placed on the 25-yard line at the start of each quarter and after scoring plays.
  • Rosters – The rosters will continue to consist of 43 players per squad.  The kick return specialist will be replaced by an additional defensive back.
  • Cover Two and Press Coverage – The defense will be permitted to play “cover two” and “press” coverage.  In previous years, only “man” coverage was permitted, except for goal line situations.
  • Stopping of the Game Clock – Beginning at the two-minute mark of every quarter, if the offense does not gain at least one yard, the clock will stop as if the play were an incomplete pass.  This rule will make the team with the ball attempt to gain yardage toward the end of each quarter.
  • Game Timing – The game clock will start after an incomplete pass on the signal of the referee, except inside the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half.
  • Play Clock – A 35-second/25-second play clock will be adopted instead of the typical 40-second/25-second clock.
  • Sacks – The game clock will not stop on quarterback sacks outside of the final two minutes of the game.  Currently, the game clock stops in these situations outside of two minutes of the second and fourth quarters.

We’ll see how it works.

– The Cardinals are off today. They resume meetings tonight and have practice outside at the team’s Tempe facility tomorrow. I’ll be curious to see how many of the injuries can be cleared up by then. (The team goes back to University of Phoenix Stadium Friday and Saturday, with Saturday being the Red-White practice.) Here’s the list of players who were still out yesterday: G Daryn Colledge (calf), WR Robert Gill (hamstring), TE Alex Gottlieb (hamstring), TE Jeff King (knee), TE Kory Sperry (ankle), RB Ryan Williams (knee), CB Jamell Fleming (hamstring), WR LaRon Byrd (concussion).

– With six days of camp and five practices in the books, it’s a good time to recap. So here’s the first mashup of camp. Truth be told, it’s very cool.
